The Brexit thread (YLD) is not political btw. It is what it does to the market.

Getting older. :( Plenty to to do, especially on the forex front. Have a look at my threads on Brexit and Cryptos. Strong 6 figure gains over the past 18mths; a mate here though is into 7 figures on crypto!

Here are a few thoughts. Learning all the time. .......plus discussions with several people over here who know a bit more than me. One who has made some really serious money this year. Bitcoin versus Sterling - 5 year view: hTTp://www.xe.com/currencycharts/?from=XBT&to=GBP&view=5Y These and following charts show how recent the massive rises have been. Bubbles??? Bitcoin versus US dollar - 5 year view: hTTp://www.xe.com/currencycharts/?from=XBT&to=USD&view=5Y Is Ethereum More Important Than Bitcoin? Article on Ethereum versus Bitcoin: hTTp://www.investopedia.com/articles/investing/032216/ethereum-more-important-bitcoin.asp The ‘Ethereum Virtual Machine’ (EVM) is capable of running smart contracts that can represent financial agreements and can also reduce the risk of a central server. Ethereum is a different animal allowing people to build off its 'backbone'. hTTps://www.ethereum.org/ Ethereum price moves: hTTps://ethereumprice.org/ - Crypto currency should not have a country risk - other risks! - Pure supply and demand; there are no country GDPs etc to support a valuation. - Little formal controls but this will change when the amount in circulation grows? - If there is still scope for further increases in value is the potential increase worth the risk? (eg. it may double over the next 12mths - is this enough?). Views?!!!!!!!!!!

Bitcoin: I've been trying to avoid it. It has been mentioned to me too but only the good news stories. Wasn't there some bitcoin fraud related stories in the press a while ago? I look forward to reading your Bitcoin v conventional currency analysis. The only currency (well interest rate) related trade I've enjoyed in the past was with the US based Eurodollar futures contract which tracks interest rates. In the time I traded it it was trending beautifully and I made some £'s. However I've read accounts of people being cleaned out by it in the 1987 crash. When the US government shoved interest rates up. So it it isn't a sure thing.

I am travelling the next few days but will try and match bitcoin against GBP/€/$ over the past 18mths to see what it shows. New territory for me.

Praipus re#812. I was put in my place over the weekend by a friend who thought that £xxxk was good but he has made a little more. He has been trading bitcoin etc. Here my knowledge base is almost zero. (Also in bubble territory btw). He is coming out boating on Friday so hopefully time for some new ideas. Here is a crazy thought in the meantime - are these 'currencies' that are not linked to a country actually safer than the Fiat currencies (eg $) should there be an event (eg Trump)?

On FX, how do you keep track of currency trends in terms of charts and data? I'm thinking ADVFN etc?

Agree with you longer term UK PLC will be stronger. But I think it will only achieve this after going a lot lower it has to be at a level were it translates in to entrepreneurial drive, development of time saving UK innovations, confidence and exports. UK related Robotics and AI might be the answer. I feel we are being constrained by inflation and in depth government meddling, over optimization and debt related fragility. Mays team have a mountain to climb.

Yes, have quite few (sold) puts open. Have been running strangles for a while but closed out the calls. Will just roll and roll them and make a little! Lloyds depends upon what happens to the UK economy/Brexit. Probably would leave alone if I did not have any positions open.

Well done on the FX your background must help you feel comfortable with it. My own experiences and back testing currency futures have been inconclusive. Also witnessing a sharp move in the Swiss franc which knocked FXCM sideways a while ago makes me curious and mindful. I noticed you post on the LLOY thread do you have an options view there?

Noticed that, I am making sure that I always keep one trade for a quiet month! Btw. sold a forex option recently on the basis that GBP will recover a bit against €. Down at the moment on that one but up £xxxk on forex related generally over the past 18mths. I am thinking that there will be major changes to May's team which will be bullish. What do you think???

Notice Pheonix-Walbrook inactivity charges, seems a shame and an opportunity missed. There must be a better method. I guess its us 1-lot junkies that cost them. The bit I don't get is should a big event occur causing one and all to buy Options again they are going to do it with another firm. Thus by losing customers they are reducing optionality? and insurance event resurgence.

VIX heading down to 1993 levels. Are we that stable???

Hmm I don't know suspect we get too little information to know what they (Ruffer or its clients) were really doing. Does the $119m equate to 1% of the assets they were protecting by any chance?

Interesting. if you believe the S&P etc. are going down. How do you play this with VIX? I see loads of derivatives from it but what is there to buy non-daily wise?

In case you missed it: "As of earlier this week, J. Ruffer had spent $119 million this year betting on a stock market shock, $89 million of which had expired worthless, according to data compiled by Macro Risk Advisors. The investor has gradually amassed holdings of about 1 million VIX calls through three occasions so far in 2017, and each time a significant portion expired at a loss. Blame a subdued VIX for the futility. The fear gauge was locked in a range of 10 to 14 for the first three months of 2017, and while it has since climbed to as high as 15.96, it has been stuck well below 14 since a single-day plunge of 26% nine days ago. Earlier this week, the index closed at its lowest level since February 2007. But that doesn't mean Ruffer is giving up. Already loaded up on May contracts, the firm has continued to buy cheap VIX calls expiring later in the year — wagers costing about 50 cents".

No, straight written forex option for the amount of the money market deposit. Same idea as a covered call on an equity holding except if called you would receive cash at the strike price in the currency of the option (eg. GBP/CHF). edit. the aim was solely to boost yield so the strike were set on that basis. From memory they were never called.
